Learning To Skate and Some Lil' Finishes!

I use to love to skate with my sisters when we were young. I had the kind that fit over your shoes and you had a skate key to adjust them. I even skated with my kids when they were little. For Christmas I got Sloan his first pair of skates and he's been practicing and once he gets the hang of it I may have to buy me a pair if I get brave!

Over the weekend the group "AAPG" I belong to on eBay had a little online retreat. We were challenged to make little quilts and here's a few I made. They are totally finished...pieced, quilted, bound and tagged. I've learned my lesson with the hooked rugs so thought I better totally finish what I started. The pumpkin patch is by Whimsicals.

Hope each of you are having a great start to a new week.

Happy Trails...Ginger

I love those mini quilts.

I love the last one - reminds me of the quilts my Grandma and her friends used to make. The scrappy patchwork style is still my favorite.
OMG Sloan is so adorable. He is very lucky to get to spend so much time with his Grandma!

Sloan looks like he is having a ball. I've been trying to get brave enough to take my grandson roller skating. It's been a long, long time since I've been on skates. I sure don't want to hurt!
I love that little blue and brown quilt ~ gorgeous!
Pug hugs :)
